Two Abbotsford students have been selected from more than 1,200 applicants across Canada to attend the award-winning Shad Valley program starting next week.
Pranav Arya and Silke Kuhn are among 620 youth selected for the four-week program, beginning June 29.
Students in Grades 10 to 12 spend a month living at one of the 12 host universities – including the University of B.C. – across the nation. They attend workshops and lectures on the sciences, engineering, technology and entrepreneurship.
They also participate in team-building exercises, recreational activities and visit tourist attractions.
Those selected have top marks, a strong community focus, and come from diverse backgrounds.
Shad Valley International is a non-profit organization based in Waterloo, Ont.
